    The $500 dollar 4 15's build

    I'll start it off by saying I wanted to do a large build on a low budget. And I figure 500 for wire, amp, and subs is a pretty low budget build.

    The box will be 18.4 cubes before all displacements. And will have interchangeable ports. With no port plug in it is tuned to 53hz with 328 sq. inches of port. I plan on building a 32hz and 44hz tuned port. I will be redoing my highs and mids also at a later date.

    The subs are 4 15" Crunch GPV D2 subs (Yeah yeah I know "Crunch?! WTF DOOD?! You should of got a BTLLEVEL5NightShadeMT!?" But I done those before why do the same old thing? The amp is a single Audiopipe 15001D (yup no more than 1500 watts for all 4 subs!)

    Onto the build!

    3 sheets of MDF all cut up


    top panel #1


    How the subs will all fit with one of the Crunch subs in


    All the holes cut out


    The beginnings of something alsome


    All sides glued and screwed on!


    More pics to come later! Comment away!

    I've been wanting to do the same thing. That was the budget I was gonna use too, but I didnt' think I could find that much sub for that; besides the fact that 4 15's aint gonna fit in my trunk. Interested to see how loud you can get it. We should have a $500 shoot-out. Lol.

    I thought about posting up a $500 "challenge," but there is really no way to verify the prices that people pay since it will most likely be used equipment. Lord knows you can't trust ca junkies. Lol. Then again, it's not like it's for the world championship and a million dollars. Hmm, maybe I'll get a trophy made up...

    Agreed. You could always require them to purchase them brand new and not allow "insider discounts." That way even the newbs can read through it and use google to buy products. Would make suggesting based on budgets a bit easier

    The only prob with requiring new products is that nobody is gonna want to spend 5 bills on stuff that only costs 5 bills. You know what I mean? Lol. We'll just have to use the honor system or fair market value to be eligible for the big bad *** trophy I am gonna get made

    Speaking of which... where are YOUR reciepts? Lol.

    Ya I actually thought about those Pyramids but I was wanting something that came with a warranty in case I blew my subs up and Maxxsonics CS is easy to work with. These subs are 700rms each so if I wanted to I could throw another AP1500 on them, we shall see how they like the wattage they get with just one amp for now.

    Thanks Fozz! Hopefully it turns out well. If they are successful in this build I think I may do a 4th order wall in the future.

    I purchased all the subs and the amp new online. All come with warranties. I am huge on buying used but truth is used they aren't much less and don't come with a warranty.
